WITS Tip of the Month on Microsoft Word

Word allows you to count the number of words, lines, paragraphs, characters, and spaces within your document. Open a document that has text and look at the bottom left-hand side of your screen. Just above the start button, you should see a blue bar that displays this information for the entire document. If you do not see it, click on the Review tab, in the Proofing group, and click Word Count.

You can determine how many words a particular section has by highlighting just that section. The status bar displays the number of words in the selection. For example, 100/12240 means that the selection accounts for 100 words of the total number of words in the document, 1,2240.
